Wished I could have stayed more than one night. We arrived as they were finishing up some carpentry remodeling work on the very small lobby. The staff were very welcoming and they proved useful information about local activities. The room was somewhat small but our room on the back corner of the thrid floor had a gorgeous mountain view. the bathroom was modern and clean, not fancy. There is a small wall mounted safe in the rooms. The elevator is old and small but usuable. The decor in the staiwells and upstairs library was dated. Breakfast was buffet style and included the usual Swiss breakfast items: croissants, jams, cheese, meats, yogurts, juices and coffee. The fruit cocktail was the canned variety. Half way through breakfast, the hotel owner arrived with fresh bread and introduced himself. I had read the previous review which negatively commented on the owner. He seemed pleasant enough, as well as invested in the hotel being run well and explained that he was installing LED lights to reduce electrical use. He accomodated our request to leave our bags there after check out so we might take a hike and then pick them up later in the afternoon.
Also Wi fi is available, but only on the first 2 floors, which meant we couldn't use it in our room.
Overall it was a nice clean place in a good location. With remodeling it has a fresh appearance in the lobby and dining area. I would return to this hotel.
